Donald Trump gave his 2020 State of the Union on Tuesday.
Hopefully it will be his last one.
He refused to shake the hand of the Speaker of the House, took credit for the turnaround in the economy which had been put in motion by the Obama administration. He bragged about assassinating a foreign leader in violation of international law, and took delight in the prospect of further eliminating options for women to make their own reproductive health choices.
It was an hour and a half of lies, backward thinking, manipulative reality TV moments, and attacks on women and our Democracy.
After listening closely to his braggadocio and falsehoods, one thing is certain: Trump will continue to deceive the American people and disgrace our democracy -- while Democrats have our neighbors’ backs on the issues that matter most.
Without a doubt, the 2020 Election has begun.
We have no choice but to do all that we can to get this president out of the White House and elect Democrats up and down the ticket.
Here in the 46th District, we are starting 2020 with a Presidential Primary outreach party next Tuesday (2/11) evening!Read more
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 - Doors open 6:30, meeting 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Environmental Caucus Meeting to meet at same location 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Elliot Bay Brewing Company 12537 Lake City Way NE, Seattle, WA 98125, USA
Program: Special Ballot Drop Day
DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, WE ARE CANCELLING OUR JANUARY 2020 MEETING, previously scheduled for Wednesday, January 15.
Although we had a great program planned, we have no time-sensitive business that cannot be addressed at our next meeting, and our members' safety is our highest priority.
We also plan to have a fun event in early February, at which we can enjoy some of the program. watch your email for details!
Why the cancellation? Arterial roads are passable in the daytime, particularly in the southern end of the district, but the side roads and hilly roads in far north Seattle, Lake Forest Park, and Kenmore are very treacherous. In Kenmore, residents have been officially asked by the city not to travel unless necessary. LFP and Kenmore are also in the Lynnwood convergence zone which endures more extreme weather in the winter.
NOAA is forecasting 3 - 6" of snow overnight over the entire 46th district, and a high of no greater than 37 degrees tomorrow, which will not effectively melt and clear ice for the evening. After dark, it is forecast to drop into the 20s, be very windy, and for snow to resume. With our meeting lasting until 9pm, we may arrive just fine, but have difficulty getting home.
In an abundance of caution, the January 2020 46th District Meeting is cancelled for January 15, 2020.
Watch for an email very soon with volunteer opportunities, a caucus help ask, and other ways you can help defeat Trump and increase the Blue Wave in 2020!
Thank you for your patience!
